Abstract
We report on a high-sensitive distributed transverse load sensing based on Brillouin dynamic gratings (BDGs) for the first time to the best of our knowledge. The sensing mechanism is to measure the transverse-load induced birefringence through exciting and probing a BDG in an elliptical-core polarization-maintaining fiber. A distributed measurement of transverse load is experimentally demonstrated with a 20-cm spatial resolution, and the measurement accuracy is as high as 4.8x10-4N/mm, which improves by three orders of magnitude compared with the prior techniques.
